Pasta and Rose Sauce Recipe

 I love this recipe Pasta with Rose Sauce is extremely delicious unfortunately (or fortunately) the only way to make it economically is to make it in bulk. Another unfortunate aspect of it is that it is probably not so healthy (doesn't it always work that way?) However it is an extremely tasty recipe and takes under 20 minutes to prepare and is great if you are trying to feed a lot of people on a small budget.

**Sauce is enough for about 3 Lbs of pasta.**

Pasta with Rose Sauce

Ingredients:
- 4 teaspoons Minced Garlic
- 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 2 Cups Crushed Tomatoes (1
- 5 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
- 2 Cups Heavy Cream
- 1/4 Cup Parsley, Chopped finely (more if you want some as a garnish.)
-  Shredded Parmesan (hardened Parmesan tastes better in this than fresh.) 

Pour the Olive Oil in a medium-sized saucepan and heat on medium heat. Saute the Minced Garlic in the Olive Oil until golden brown. Add the Crushed Tomatoes and Tomato Paste. Heat for 10 minutes, add Parsley and Heavy Cream and heat for an additional 5 minutes on low heat. Serve over Farfalle (Bow tie) Pasta, add a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese and Parsley. 


Andy and I had this for our Valentine's Day Dinner which we had on Sunday and we both enjoyed it very much. My family has been using the sauce up for meals since and there's still some left over. The sauce is cream based, so I do not believe it will freeze well-- it rarely gets to that point anyway, my family attacks it. The fact that my family eats it is something in itself as most of them refuse to touch my cooking due to their very limited palates. :D
